The task was to re-evaluate the existing monitoring system, to optimize or change it if necessary.
The existing system was evaluated for flexibility, utilization, notification and usability.
It turned out that the existing system is already flexible and offers many possibilities for notification. But due to the system structure was not very efficient. Among other things, this had an impact on the utilization of the system. But also by the exclusive operation by configuration files the potential could not be exhausted.
With CheckMK, the software could be optimized.
Service and System Checks are easier and better configured through the web interface. Also, the better handling of the notifications can be set up more efficiently.
The utilization of the new monitoring system has been significantly reduced because the monitoring system no longer carries out all checks but already receives the information from the systems to be monitored.
Once the new monitoring system is used, problems and failures of systems can be detected more quickly and notified via different channels.
